—Oswald Chambers, My Utmost for His Highest (13 March, "God's Total Surrender to Us")
This surrender is still a struggle/challenge, and I'm perhaps most in awe of the fact that I'm invited to surrender to His sovereign love at all. My God, how gracious You are. Catch me up in You.
Talked with Annette, Heather, and Nate at breakfast about loneliness—how difficult it can be and how we can be responsible for continuing to live in it. Nothing comes without investment. You have to show up, at a minimum, and if you aren't doing that, you need to make your peace with the consequences of that choice. Sometimes that's me, but I own it. Choosing to be a victim is irresponsible, sad, and denies the power of the gospel.
My dinner tonight has no meat in it whatsoever. That's just weird.
